This is our F.A.Q.
1.Who is the official importer for Minelab ?
WORLDDETECTORS Ltd. is the official importer of Minelab for Bulgaria, Greece, Northern Macedonia and Albania.
2. Where is the Minelab service for the countries Bulgaria, Greece, Northern Macedonia, Albania?
-The official service for the Bulgaria is located at:Sofia,Bulevard Bulgaria 53.
-The official service for Greece,Northern Macedonia and Albania is located at:K.VARDAKA 24, Riga Fereou str.P. Faliro, Athens, 17563 +302109844563
3.CAN MINELAB METAL DETECTORS TELL WHAT A TARGET IS LIKELY TO BE BEFORE I DIG IT UP?
-Yes, Minelab metal detectors have the ability to ‘discriminate’ between different types of targets. The discrimination feature on Minelab detectors measure two target properties, ferrous properties and conductive properties.
4.WHAT EFFECTS DO DIFFERENT OPERATING FREQUENCIES HAVE?
-As a rule of thumb, the lower the frequency used by the detector, the deeper it can penetrate the ground. At low frequencies however, sensitivity to small low conductive targets is reduced. The higher the frequency, the higher the sensitivity to small targets, but will not penetrate as deeply. In general, gold detectors operate at higher frequencies (to find small nuggets), while coin and treasure detectors work at lower frequencies for deeper penetration. The exception to this is MPS type metal detectors that are sensitive and deep seeking simultaneously.
5.HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GROUND BALANCE, WHERE SHOULD I GROUND BALANCE?
-On some detectors you don’t need to ground balance at all. On others, users new to detecting are recommended to use the Ground Balance Tracking function.
6.HOW WILL I KNOW IF THE GROUND IS MINERALISED?
-If your detector is noisy when you are detecting, but goes quiet when you stop sweeping the coil, then it is receiving signals from mineralized ground. Perform a ground balance and continue detecting.
GPX series only: if it is still noisy then you may need to try an alternate soil/timing selection. All other detectors: if it is still noisy you would need to reduce your sensitivity to the highest stable sensitivity level.
7.ARE THE COILS OF MINELAB METALDETECTORS WATERPROOF?
-All MINELAB coils are waterproof. Exceptions are the coils in the detectors of the GPX series.
